Cranbrook School - Respect Aspire Achieve

Lynx House

Lynx House is the newest House. Its history comes from the very beginnings of the school with William Lynch carrying out the wishes of John Blubery from his will, and Simon Lynch later ensuring the continuation of schooling in Cranbrook. The Lynch family crest contained ‘three rampant lynxes’, these were later adopted by the school in the late 19th Century.  Our motto is ‘Nosce te ipsum’ and the logo was designed by OC Willow Goldfinch.

When researching lynx as a spirit animal students found it symbolises some of the following : ‘awareness, change, ability, confidence, intuition, instinct, comfort, foresight, loyalty, independence, passion, patience, tranquility, secrets, revealing secrets, trust, and understanding the unseen,’ which gives us plenty to contemplate in our first term together. We are all looking forward to making history.

The new year 9 cohort are settling into the House and we hold vertical group activities run by the sixth form team on a regular basis. We are also sharing subject experiences at sixth form level and some sixth form students are mentoring lower school students.

The sixth form team have been instrumental in shaping the present and future of the House – our first major social event being our Christmas dinner.
